Although known mainly for breathtaking nature, Langkawi turned over the last decade into a true wellness destination, presenting you with the unique opportunity to experience during your holidays the indigenous healing tradition of the region. A crossroad of ancient maritime trade routes, the island embraces spa rituals reflecting the distinctive blend of Malaysia’s diverse cultures: healing and beauty practices of Orang Asli - the aboriginal Malay rainforest tribes, Ayurvedic treatments native to India, and traditional Chinese medicine. Following the international wellness trends, the local spas increasingly provide also popular treatments from all over the world.

Genuinely caring therapists, a dreamlike spa setting within a primordial rainforest or with a breathtaking view of the Andaman Sea, rich massage oils and exotic body wrap blends made of freshly harvested fruits, flowers, herbs and spices …  Langkawi Spa Experience is truly unique!

You can find tiny, half hidden massage places with heartfelt personal welcome, and décor so simple that no detail distracts from the actual treatment. And there are five star establishments with extensive hydrotherapy facilities from Jacuzzi to sauna and steam bath, providing a truly indulgent experience appealing to all of your senses. (One does not  have to be a hotel guest to treat oneself to a relaxing resort spa afternoon!)

Considering the wide variety of options, choosing the ‘right’ spa establishment, and selecting among the many treatments offered may prove slightly challenging. To help you tailor your spa experience to suit your individual needs, the international Spa Expert, Kamila Delart, visited on behalf of Langkawi Gazette all noteworthy Spas on the island, reviewed their facilities, service and treatments, and put together a detailed LANGKAWI SPA GUIDE.
